I need to know the Windows-NT username from a win95 client that logs on to a winNT network. I need the username at login-script level, the getusername() does not work at this time. After the login-scipt has finished the getusername() function works fine.

Hello Epsylon,

Thanks for your answer. Can you please help me out how I call this function in Delphi. My MAPI-programming is not that good. Thanks for helping me out.
